First of all, big thanks goes out to Lowe’s for making this little update possible! I’m a part of the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Network and they generously offered to give me $500 to spend at Lowe’s for the bathroom update. Pretty awesome-sauce I must say! LCI is full of inspiration if you need some. You can check out the blog here and they’re even on Pinterest!
Okay here’s where it gets a little sticky…See that linoleum in the corner near the toilet? It’s covering the original tile floor. The family that lived her before us tried to no avail to remove it. Definitely HIGH on the priority list!
Here is the current update list. I have a few things crossed off, but there’s definitely plenty left to do!
Paint walls Replace shower curtain rod
Replace window treatment
I’m thinking of creating a fun little roman shade using Jenny’s little DIY on how to make roman shades from mini blinds. Fun!
Update lighting fixtures – 1/2 done replaced glass shades
Okay, I’ve found some more streamlined, square glass shades from Lowe’s, they’re not on the website it looks like. I’m thinking I might want to replace the fixtures as well because they’re so “aged”, we’ll see.
I wanted a nickel knob to match all of the nickel hardware in the bath. We went with these classic Bronte knobs from Lola & Co (Lowe’s).
Replace shower curtains
New Bath Rug
Replace shower head (?)
What’s not to love about a rainshower head? We got this lovely from Lowe’s, but haven’t installed it yet. Still debating…it’s pretty, but the shower head we have works great it’s just not very pretty (see pic above).
Replace loose toilet seat
I got these great white and gray towels from a flash sale on Joss & Main. It’s always nice to have fresh, new towels for a new bathroom, don’t you think?

Looks great! Good luck with that floor!
Our bathrooms are almost identical! I had my tile sprayed with a crazy cool paint to make it look fresh and white. I have the SAME floors in my bathroom too – I really like them! What year was your house built? Im thinking mine was 54 or 56…
How funny! 🙂 This house was actually built back in 1916 I think….so maybe the tile isn't original after all!
If you haven't already removed the floor I would start with removing the toilet so you don't have to work around it. Then I would get out the heat gun and a putter knife…..but make sure you get a good heat gun not the crappy freight harbor kind. Then I would use a glue remover to get the residue off.
Can you tell me where you got the lamps from?
